WineScores' Review

Silky, sauvage, savoury.

The Mavety family has been growing grapes high above Vaseaux Lake in the South Okanagan since 1971. Since 1991 they have been making their own wines under the Blue Mountain label. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and the combination in their sparkling wine program are their specialties.
This reserve cuvee is selected blend from vines consisting of four Burgundian clones, which are 25+ years old.
Sauvage: bloody meat and fleur de sel, wild red berries and grilled red apple peel, toasted spice and forest floor aromas roll into a silky palate. Sweet red fruit latches onto the palate before evolving into darker forest berries layered with botanical, cedar and toasted spice flavours. It has a muscular but balanced elegance and very youthful character. I would put this one away for a year or more.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
